I have a form that is quite long and a bit clunky... can I use columns or tabs to break it up?

    Here is the current "old style" form on their site... 



    It updates frequently, and this perl coding stuff is cumbersome.

    You can see it is a bit long... so I'm wondering if I can divide it up a bit to make it more user friendly.


    ALSO, if we start out with the FREE version, but then get more submissions than anticipated, will you just notify so we can switch to paid without losing any submissions?





    p.s.  I see you do have a column option... which I applied to a 2 answer radio button question... but it won't let me adjust the width and so it bunches up the 2nd option into a narrow tab width... is that adjustable?

    I saw the adjustments for field name width, and form width, but not for the columns.

    Hope someone can help me out here.

    Hello Christine, 

    Have you looked at the Page Break tool ? It can break your form up into seperate 'pages' with a Next and/or Back at the bottom of each section of your form.


    I am not sure what exactly you are trying to do with those columns. I think you should start by experimenting a little in the form editor. Get all your elements on your form and if you can't get an effect or look you want; provide us the URL/ID of the form you are working on and we will do our very best to help you make it look how you want. (we like to think we know a few useful tricks here in JotForm Support)


    As regards your other issue, yes, you will get an email notification when you are running near to your submission limits for whatever account type you are on.


    Just as an FYI going forward: To help us track users issues and requests via our support forum, we would really appreciate if forum users open new threads for each seperate support request.


    Thanks and welcome to JotForm!
